Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
The heating element in my oven went out. My husband bought another element and replaced it. Now there is an error code of F10 that keeps flashing and the thing keeps beeping also. I thought my oven was fixed after replacing the element and I put a casserole in oven on delayed start. When came home it was BURNT up !! Can someone help ???
Code F-10 indicates a temperature runaway. There are two possible problems. 1) The oven temp sensor has failed. This can be checked using a standard multimeter. The sensor is located behind the rear access panel of your oven. The sensor should read about 1100 ohms at room temperature. 2) The oven control board needs to be replaced. There are no FRU's (field replaceable units) on the control board. Check the sensor first. Even a new control board is cheaper than a new oven.

You have a shorted relay in the control board.
